Description

LG Optimus Pad is the European cousin of the T-Mobile G-Slate tablet. It has a 8.9 inches display, positioning it right between the iPad's 9.7" and the Galaxy Tab's 7" screens. In terms of raw power, the LG Optimus Pad will utilize NVIDIA's one and only Tegra 2 chipset, which fares quite decently, at least judging by our personal impressions with the Optimus 2X. What's more interesting in this device however is its ability to capture 3D content with the two 5MP sensors found on its back. Unfortunately, users won't be able to watch glasses-free 3D on the LG Optimus Pad's 8.9-inch screen. 3D video watching will be done by either using glasses on the tablet's screen, or by streaming the signal via HDMI 1.4 to a compatible 3D TV or monitor (again, for use with glasses). When it comes to software, LG has chosen to stick with stock Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
